5th June 2011
Opaque dark brown beer. Tidy pale tan head. Crispy dry palate. Robust dark malt, dry and with a dose of coffee. The hops are similarly robust. Piney, grassy and with a bitter aftertaste. Very dry finish. Nice flavour but too dry!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is dark brown in color with some slight amber notes and a dense khaki colored head.
S: A nice big hoppy nose to this one with lots of grapefruit, tangerine, and pine. The roast is not super strong, but there is a nice dark chocolate and cocoa aroma to it as well.
T: Starts with a solid hop flavor, exhibiting the same grapefruit, tangerine, and pine combination that was present on the nose. Slightly creamy with cocoa powder and a solid roasted malt base.
M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation and a nice bitter finish.
D: This is a well done Black IPA (or whatever it’s called now). I’d be glad to have another pour of this beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy & Grippitis @ Aces & Ales in Vegas. Quiet near-black pour, low brown head. Aroma of dark treacle, soy sauce, grass and pine. Very malty palate, lots of brothy dark malts, cocoa, molasses, with a blast of hops coming in very late. More like an imperial porter than a black IPA, but I probably enjoyed it even mor for that.
